Apostasy, Jams Trimm aught to know (Anti-trinity, Anti-New Testament), Cult of the Way International
There have been many articles that warn against the teachings of the group known as the Way International.
The Way International promoted its false teachings originally through its founder Victor Paul Wierwille.
It is considered a cult by traditional historic Christian denominations.
[ as noted by others, some denominations today have departed from their own historic doctrines. That is sadly true in some cases, but that would not change the reality that the Way International promotes views which remain in opposition to the historic doctrines of Christianity and the Christian faith even while claming to have found their true way].
The Way International message centers aeound the denial of the Trinity, altering the identity of Jesus Christ, distorting the historic doctrines of Christianity, and teaching salvation by good works, which is a strong contradiction to the central message of the Historic Bible [ 1611 here] and historic Christianity.
James Trimm worked for and with the Way International for many years.
James Trimm consistently seems to refuse to acknowledge the historicity and accuracy of the Doctrine od the Trinity. Yet such claims about the Trinity [ historic Christian Trinity – here
.] and the accurate claims of Jesus Christ [ Evidence for the Historic Jesus Christ – here
.] have been examined and demonstrated , many times.
Some of the teachings of James Trimm are known under the concepts of the “Sacred Name” teachings.
Sacred name (concepts) pretends to be historic, but actually involve the importation of talmudic (or occult ?) magical concepts into christianity. Sacred name theology asserts that one cannot communicate with God without the secret incantation of His name, which only those who Have studied the Sacred Name (under certain teachers who usually advocate judaism, talmudic and otherwise) are able to know, pronounce, and appeal to God correctly. It is the rebirth of the concept of the mystical priesthood, and the Sacrd name teacher will bring you into the secret mysteries of the sacred name. Protests all you want, but when you study the actions od the Sacred namers, this is what most of them actually practice.
It is one things to believe in the Holiness of God, and to want to worship Him. It is something entirely different to suggest that UNLESS one does know or write corrct version of the the name of God IN ENGLISH, that God cannot hear or respond to us. The sacred name movement has many strands, because most sacred name teachers are in contradiction to each other, and do not know either Hebrew, Translation or Transliteration principles, nor the History of the English Language.
James Trimm brings together the fase concepts of false Sacret name doctrines, advocates against the Trinity, and then promotes many concepts found in occultic talmudic Judaism. Add to that the teachings od the Way International, and that is Trimm formula for being led very far astray from historic Christianity. Trimm refers to his concepts as Judaism, clarifying his brand of errant conclusions.
Problems with the false teachings of the Way International have been pointed out by many. These include
online information such as:

MARTINDALE RESIGNS PRESIDENCY... Martindale Admits Fault
These are not small issues.
The Doctrines of James Trimm represent a consistent opposition to the historic teachings of the Christian Faith. While everyone is obviously entitleed to believe as their choose, it should be made clear what those beliefs are. James Trimm seems to strongly oppose historic Christianity and the Doctrine of the Trinity.
There are many claims within the Sacred Name movement. AT its core, much of the teaching of the Sacred Name movement involves the atttempted erasure of the New Testament.
Much of the Sacred Name movement claims superior knowlege of Hebrew. Those claims are false and filled with errors. The claims to historic understanding of the translation process of either the Old Testament or the New Testament are false. Their claims to superior translations are False, and the versions of the Bibe that they are produce are innacurate, error-filled and historically, logically, etymologically and linguistically indefensible.

The likelyhood of finding out which Hebrew manuscripts are accurate and which ones are not – from any teacher in the Sacred Name [false] movement - are very very small. If you find out for yoursel, you will learn that you can study and learn on your own. And you will also learn that the level of reliability of the false teachers is sadly lacking. Those in the sacred name movement must demonstrate the courage to ray and seek truth on their own. The tools do exist for the sincere and dedicated seeker to do this.
Rather than wait for the official version of edited history, lets help them and provide the information directly to you , the end-user and truth seeker.

The BASIS for the evaluation of Historic Manuascripts of the Hebrew Manuscripts was produced in the 900 page excellent work of historic and linguistic accuracy by the noted Hebre Scholar C.D. Ginsburg.
His Work which is called Introduction to the Massoretico-critical edition of the Hebrew Bible. This ecellent rare work from the 1800s Is ALSO Available in 2 Volumes for Free online.
Introduction to the Masoretico-critical edition of the Hebrew Bible 01
Introduction to the Masoretico-critical edition of the Hebrew Bible 02
C.D. Ginsburg (author of Introduction to the Massoretico-critical edition ) REMAINS the leading scholar on Hebrew Manuscripts of the last 400 years. The point is that we DO know shich Hebrew manuscripts are accurate and which ones are not. The information has been available long before the errant conclusions of mr. Trimm.
If Mr trimm would study the Historic Texts, and do a lot less trimming, his understanding of Biblical truth would improve.
While much is said about the Apocryphal books, it can be hard to find genuin information. The Apocryphal books were NOT even claimed to be scripture until the Vatican
. Council of Trent, which dclared the false books of the Apocrypha to be inspired in the 1500s. For the first 1500 years of christianity, the same 66 books of the Old and New Testaments were the same as what is found in most Bible today. The 14 Apocryphal books were added to Roman Catholic editions of the Bible when the Vatican
. could not respond intellectually to the writings of Calvin and Luther on Salvation by faith alone. The very word “apocrypha” means counterfeit. Even Jerome who wrote his own Latin Vulgate (which replaced the older accurate one) admitted that the Apocryphal books were not to be included as scripture. This statement was placed in the beginning of Jeromes translation of them, in the latin. (Modern Vatican editions of the Apocrypha books omit this warning by Jerome.
The Apocrypha plays a large role still today, usually in causing confusion and doubt about the other 66 books of the Bible. Teachers such as James Trimm may try to argue that the Apocryphal books are not reliable but then promote other sources such as the book of Enoch, which is not inspired and was never part of the Hebrew or the Christian canon [list] of Books within the Bible.
Information about the Bible Society and their inclusion of the [False] books of the Apocrypha can be found here at :
A Plea For The inspiration And Canon Of Scripture
Information about the Canon of Scripture (the 66 Books which should be included in the Bible) can be found here at:
A Plea for the [Inspiration and] use of an accurate Canon of Scripture ( Bible) by the Bible Society
The Bible Society that led the modern defection from truth was the British and Foreign Bible Society. In 1904, They officially voted to defect to the false Wescott and Hort side, and publish errant [false] versions of the Bible. That is no secret. That is simply a matter of public record. A short version
.of some of that material
. has already been addressed here. (Her original work
. from the 1990s on New Age versions still stands the test of time ). The Edinburgh Bible Society
. stayed faithful for a long time, but eventually resistance to the Vatican
. was overcome
Interesting Information about the Modern False versions of the Bible, which are based on False Greek Manuscripts of the New Testament can be found at:
1) Books by Professor John William Burgon of Oxford University
a] The traditional text of the Holy Gospels vindicated and established
b] causes of the corruption of the traditional text of the Holy Gospels
c] The revision revised
c] The revision revised : three articles reprinted from the Quarterly review :
I. The new Greek text.
II. II. The new English version.
III. III. Westcott and Hort's new textual theory
The Revision Revised is an explanation of the problems in the translation and work of Mr. Westcott and Mr. Hort. Westcott and Hort were apostate false translators who claimed to be faithful Christians. The evidence does not support that conclusion. Westcott in his own book claimed to be part of occult societies. Their work is used for many modern versions of the Bible. Information about them can be found in the work on the Hidden History of the Greek New Testament.

There is much that has been written on Criticism of the Bible. But most of these are simpy attacks against the contents of the Bible.
There is not much intellectual argument. People ar simply unhappy that God actually claims to be God. Then, some are further unhappy at being informed that there is an afterlife and they should prepare now in order to avoid the wrong eternal destination.
Still textual criticism
. has misled many, though through study
., some have recovered
Information about the 1611 version is not lacking either. The 1611 King James versions can be found here, online, for Free. It is called the King James version because He ordered it produced. King James did not Personally translate any of the version that has his name.

Textus Receptus (Scrivener) 1860
We do know that as the book of Revelation describes, there are two Christs that do appear. The true jesus Christ is the one who returns in the clouds
.and brings His followers to Him in Heaven.
Luke 24: 50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
(Mat 24:30 KJV) And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
(Mat 26:64 KJV) Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
(Mark 13:26 KJV) And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
(Mark 14:62 KJV) And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
The other is a Christ who claims to be the real one, but establishes a Global Kingdom with the Earth as his domain during a period of time that appears to be seven years. This false one has his own characteristics
, which include the ability to do miracles and to deceive millions upon millions of people:
Revelation 13: 13 And he [the Anti-Christ] doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth
. by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship
.the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he [the Anti-Christ] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive
.a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666
The book of Revelation
. is often said to be difficult to understand, unless it is read along with the Old Testament
. books of Daniel
., and Isaiah
At best, Mr Trimm seems to be a proponent of Judaism
., but that shoud not to be confused with Christianity. Salvation by works under the system promoted by the pharisees is not the same as christianity, which is exactly the point made by Saint Paul in the book of Romans
Perhaps Mr Trimm should learn more about which messiah he is advocating and what the scriptures state. He can always read the standard study on the return of christ
. , in order to understand the difference between the true Messiah and the coming counterfeit messiah, who may usher in a false combination of islam
. and Vatican
. Christianity ( Chrislam )
The Messiah of James Trimm is called the Messiah but does not correspond to the Jesus Christ found in the New Testament. Those seeking truth may find other sources of use to compare the teachings of James Trimm with those of the Word of God (the Old and New Testaments). Mr Trimm will not be as likely to write as much as Darby
., but at least Darby was known to be a true Christian, and someone who produced deep exegetical studies out of the Old and New Testaments. Even Scofield
. wrote about the Identity of the Messiah, and produced a small work with sound reasoning and Hebraic documentation.
The Way International has many strands and branches, and many of those can be found under the surface of the Hebrew Roots movement and the Sacred Name movement.
The teachings of Michael Rood and James Trimm continue to cause much confusion
., and lead many astray.
Some have previously addressed the errors of the Theology of James Trimm, Doctor James Trimm's "Jewish" School & International Beit Din
. ) to little avail. One must actually study the actual Word of God in order to obtain His Discernment.
Yet the supposed scholarship
. of James Trimm leaves a great deal to be desired, leaving one with many doubts and concerns about the issues of plagiarism and lack of scholarship
., (for those who have the courage to find out) , even concerning his knowledge of Hebrew.
it never hurts to learn about genuine salvation
. , and learning how to study the Bible
. does no harm,
especially when we each ask GOd for wisdom, clarification, and His help to understand.
There is much study which CAN be done concerning true and false versions of the New and Old Testaments. But one consistent theme is that those who are accurate avocates of truth, accurately represent Christianity and can discuss its contents with knowledge.
It has been a usefull allegation for the past 200 years that the real Bible is lost, the true records of christianity cannot be found, and that the historic Greek and Hebrew Manuscripts are not reliable. Yet the evidence demonstrates the contrary. Those who seek truth would do well to study standard historic advocates of Christianity. These include Robert Haldane, Sir Robert Anderson, John W. Burgon, A W Torrey, Spurgon, Calvin, Luther, Jonathan Edwards, Rawlinson, and the Many other advocates of true , standard, and historic Christianity.
